Our collaborative ethos applies to every aspect of our Institute, and we are committed to being an engaged and involved member of the communities we are fortunate to be a part of. This is reflected in our outreach programs, located in both Boston and South Africa. Each program is developed as part of an ongoing conversation with, and commitment to, our broader communities.
